Previous studies have identified behavioral state as a factor that moderates the relationship between self-generated movements and neural activity. Specifically, in infant rats before postnatal day (P)11, whereas sensory feedback from limb movements during wake only weakly activates sensorimotor cortex, sensory feedback from limb twitches during active sleep triggers strong cortical responses [
